Apple is betting big on China. Looks like it has renewed its focus on India too. Apple’s new phone launches aren’t as delayed as they used to be. Just not that, there are some goodies coming along the way. Apple will be selling refurbished iPhone 4’s (16 GB) in India for Rs. 22,500.
This might be the first time something refurbished has been sold by a popular company in India. So let’s get right to what it really means. Dictionary.com defines refurbished as thus :
to furbish again; renovate; brighten: to refurbish the lobby.
Refurbished in the context of gadgets simply means, the devices had some defects or minor flaws which were rectified by the company. Technically you wouldn’t know if the device was refurbished if the company doesn’t tell you. But the company tells you and offers the device to you at a lower price, for the simple reason that it was sent to the mother ship.
Refurbished iPhone 4 will get full one year warranty and Apple support during this time.
iPhone 4 (8GB)
There was a rumor which we published about a cheaper 8GB version of iPhone 4 being available for Rs. 21000. Thankfully that rumor is still in tact. There is still a 8GB iPhone 4 lurking and the refurbished version will not come in the way of 8GB iPhone 4.
The other day I was confused with which iPhone 4 to buy and asked Siri for suggestion. A day passed and my confusing has grown stronger. Just add a refurbished iPhone 4 to the list and let me continue with my confusion.
